The (Rear) End
Today's the day.
I woke up before five this morning and I'm now fighting Trevor (who wants his morning snuggle) to get this typed in time for me to leave to meet my parents and head out.
Since September 1, 2007, I have walked 270 miles (original goal = 200) with Oscar. My parents' dog Jackie came along for many of those and one or both of my parents joined her. It wasn't much more than a year ago that I literally could not walk a third of a mile - a friend had to get in her car and drive that distance and pick me up. Now that I've shared that humiliation with you, I'll casually mention that for the past several weeks, we've been walking five miles a day.
Today I will walk 3.1 more.
You've helped me raise over $700 (original goal = $500) and there may be time for you to get another few in there (I'm not sure when the Active.com site stops accepting money for this event) - if everyone who reads this gives just a few dollars, we could easily double that original goal!
Thank you all for your support on this - it has changed my life. And hopefully, the awareness and money that we raised could change someone else's as well.
Can't write more - gotta
